Hi my name is*****...

Hi my name is***** trying to learn how to replace the inline fuse on MMS5208WS1 microwave. Can you help me?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the microwave's make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

I gave you the model number above. It shows a manufacture date of Jan2013

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes assuming I can do it without being electrocuted.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Other than its a Whirlpool I guess not.

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
it keeps asking for my phone number so we can talk. Can you provide the instructions here? rather have the steps in writing
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
are you still with me or did I lose you?

you will first need to remove the grill above the microwave (screws on top of the microwave.

Once the grill is removed you have one screw above the control panel ,remove that screw and then the control panel will fold down .

And once the control panel is laying down you should see the inline fuse in it`s fuse holder.

MAKE SURE you have unplugged the microwave then you can just pop the old fuse out of the fuse holder and press the new fuse into the holder.

Then just put everything back together.

If you have any questions just let me know!
